I'm sorry but every time I read a post of yours, I tend to think of the Ferrero Rocher adverts.

And English is officially my second language, with Welsh being my first.

It is true, Miss D, though Rob will say I just came up with this to impress you, BUT a gal with a Welsh accent is about the top of the list for me, and I'll leave it to the imagination as to which list I mean...I practically get misty eyed and weak knee'd listening to the members of the 24th Foot chatting during Zulu (but not because I am that kind of guy...not that there is anything wrong with that...right BD?).

Not sure why that's so...

Skies is like one of those computer algorithms designed to mimic intelligence and fool humans - a french version. Perhaps theres a bunch of hippies sitting in a cyber cafe overlooking the seine thinking "if we can fool a bunch of acid addled hippies then next step the world!" I don't wan't to belittle Skies, but as previously stated his syntax, and command of the english language is erratic to say the least... I'd love to think that he was a real guy, but...

I think you meant to say you are a real person!

Nothing that happens in california would surprise me. There are times when it looks like your english comes from an online translator. Thats not a criticism its an observation, shit if we were talking in french i would have to do the same half the time! You are in the word of Winston Churchill "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma" Not that it particularly bothers me, i think its fantastic that there are deadheads in france - next time i am over we must meet up for a pastis or ch'ti or a leffe though not leffe red, coz that tastes like piss ( i know they're belgian beers, but very popular in the nord pas de calais.

stay frosty,

Make up your mind,dilcurrie,if you already know that I am not a real person ,that I must be some robot translating in english ,then why also talk of meeting together nnext time you cme to France ?Right now it is very unsettling for me ,the idea of meeting deadheads again ,I don't really know why .Maybe because a month ago ,I never even imagined I could find deadheads again,and never once thought it could happen via a computer .Fist ,of course I was very glad about this but now I stall wondering a what's the use of all that,too old to still want to play now ,or I simply need more time to accect such new event, deadheads again,ouh,la,la !!!

Isn't Welsh a celtic language ? Here in Brittany ,they want to impose "breton" in school ,but to me this is only a provincial language ,not that useful compared to english . Being rather lazy about learning foreign langueges ,I figured long ago the best choice was english . So Welsh came here this summer to a festival we had on the port .Do the Wlsh feel like Scots and Irish about England ,and prefer independance from the Brits ?
